Add a small, but expandable sticky note that can be placed in margins and uses the text zoom interface.
Often the pdf documents have ~1" margins and there have been paragraphs that I would either like to add my own commentary, create a small sketch of an idea, or note an idea related to the material. The margins aren't big enough to fit, but adding a whole blank notes page is too large (I use an iPad Pro).
I request a feature for having a color indicated "sticky note" that fits on either side of the margins and can be placed anywhere alongside it. Tap the little box, and the expanded note comes into view with various options for text, changing note color etc...
Truth be told, the text zoom feature interface that is already in place would work fantastic for this sticky notes feature.
I use goodnote to read pdf, if have sticky note will be wonderful for me to type( perfectly will be write) my further thought. Sometime there are not too space on PDF we can write. (it will cover other note)
Thank you for all effort to make this app amazing!

Would love this. A sticky note to move wherever on my notes
As a student it would be really useful to have this sticky note feature.
A general trend I see in university learning is that professor's often release their powerpoints as PDF files. Students will then download these PDF's to take notes directly on them. However, depending on the professor for a variety of reasons there may be little to no space to take these notes. This means either the notes have to be covering the diagram/text or written extremely small in the margins of the PDF.
A moveable and or closeable sticky note would help students write comfortably in the margins without covering the orginal notes.
I noticed that Wilson also commented this, but because there's no way to upvote his comment I wanted to write an additional one.

Hi. Excellent 💡 idea BUT must have the handwritten sticky notes rather than just text written stickies. Digital handwriting is key to really succeed this feature. AGAIN: Excellent idea 💡!!!
It would be amazing to have a small window that opens as a notepad when you open a pdf file in goodnotes. The window should be movable around the screen to give access to a full-size pdf. This feature can be found in the app flexcil.
It’s a feature that users can put a button like a small post-it wherever they want on their page so they can just click it to open the pop-ups and the can write on do things on there.
Hello, I've been using goodnotes for my school for a long time now and it has been working perfectly ! I'm messaging you because I have a useful suggestion for an improvement for school hardcore note takers.
Being able to add a 'sticker'/'footnote' on a page would be very useful. Stickers which we can make notes to certain notes that are not too important on a main note or different purposes. The stickers are able to be folded and unfolded on a any page by clicking. and able to adjust the size of the sticker would be very nice too.
I usually take notes on PDF slides that professors provide to us and sometimes the slide doesnt have enough space for me to keep my notes, so I usually make a page after the note to continue my notetaking. However if the 'sticker' is available I would just have to write notes on a sticker and fold it when I'm done. Which I could also unfold it if I review the slide after a while. I feel like it really saves up a lot of space and helps us to make notes with consistency.
also when professors gives out problem exercises in a single pdf slide cramped all the questions in. I could also use 'stickers' on the pdf so that I dont have to write it in a new page.
I hope this could be added and thank you so much for your time.

And "invisible ink" or "invisible sticky notes" that could only be seen on the iPad, and not on the monitor (if broadcasting to a separate monitor/recording). For example, this would allow a teacher to have the answers on hand without the students being able to see the answers on the screen.
Floating to-do sticky notes ( holding important reminders for the day) that is in the frontside of notes even if we keep shifting between notes.
it would be cool to have a note "overlay," like how the today view on the iPad home screen can be shown or not. Maybe an indicator that says if you have sticky notes, then slide over to see them on top of the page?
I like how when you choose to export a file, you can select background and annotations or not, it would be great to have the same for sticky notes.
This would be so helpful! Need it to annotate articles for university. Especially since there’s no split view. As suggested by a previous comment, putting the stickies on extra pages at the end + page numbers is a great idea!
Stickie notes that can be added over text that’s there & be made transparent. So you can see text behind it if you want to.
I like this idea but also add the ability to have handwritten sticky notes, not just text written.
I would prefer that the sticky note appears at the place where you place it rather than at the end with a page reference. I don't want to keep shuttling back and forward, or require my colleagues to whom I have sent the exported pdf to do so!
GoodReader manages it and Adobe reader (or Pro) can read them. So unless, you're doing something drastically and significantly different here in the annotations layer, PLEASE can we have the same?!

I understand that this may complicate the export process. I suppose one way of tackling it is adding a page at the end of the document that contains a formatted list of the sticky notes with corresponding page numbers. That way the document can still be exported properly (with or without sticky notes option?).
